What is a Walkthrough Video?
Walkthrough video is a video where a walkthrough of the property is recorded for playback. This is not a custom made video where different frames are stitched together to create a beautiful presentation, but rather to serve as the first step of a virtual viewing to save your time. It is a service to cover the gap between Still Photography and Virtual Tours that will require hosting and usually comes at extra cost.
Is Walkthrough Video better than 3D Virtual Tour?
They have different interaction levels and storage methods:
Video Walkthrough is more affordable but less engaging option to the viewer as they can’t look around as in 3D tour – there is only play and stop option. Once uploaded on YouTube video is hosted for free to share with anyone.
3D Virtual Tour is more engaging and also can be played as a video but with the option for the viewer actually look around and walk to areas of their interest, just like in a computer game. 3D Virtual Tour tend to be more expensive and will require hosting (a monthly fee).
